Salt Lake combines the amenities of a major metropolitan area with the
friendliness of a small, western city. Hosting the Olympic Winter Games of 2002
enhanced the community's profile as a world-class travel destination, while
showcasing Salt Lake as an unspoiled, family-friendly destination.
Salt Lake is nestled in a valley at the foot of two mountain
ranges—the Wasatch to the east and the Oquirrhs to the west. In spring, the
canyons are adorned with wild flowers and impromptu waterfalls. During summer,
hiking, rock climbing, and mountain biking are just minutes away. A blaze of
brilliant foliage erupts on canyon walls in autumn. When the snow flies, it
graces the slopes at ten world-class ski resorts including Alta, Brighton,
Snowbird, and Solitude. Daily sunshine, low humidity, and refreshing mountain
breezes combine for a comfortable year-round climate.
Salt Lake offers first class accommodations, fine dining,
noted attractions, historic sites, and great shopping. The city is a thriving
cultural centre—home to one of the nation's finest regional symphony orchestras,
world-class opera, dance, and theatre companies, an illustrious choir, and
myriad art galleries. Salt Lake is also the gateway to ten national parks within
a day's drive.
